INSIDE THIS ISSUE

Do you enjoy video games? You will likely be interested in how video games have impacted the medial/legal landscape. Are you a cable subscriber who is not happy with the cost of cable services and prefers a Pick-and-Pay model? You will certainly be interested in the article on the CRTC’s “Let’s Talk TV” hearings. Lawyers who do not practice in the entertainment/art law field, and those that do, will enjoy articles that touch on the typical advice clients seek and the diversity of issues presented in this practice area. The CBABC’s 2014 accomplishments are highlighted and the benefits of the Lawyer Referral Service are reviewed. Both articles remind readers of the benefits of membership and the impact that the CBABC has on its community.
